It's a combination of traditional "social apartheid" and lack of access to resources. For instance in the US almost all black athletes or pro-football or basketball players need to win a sports scholarship or get a sponsor to get the training to become an elite athlete. The hurdles they face is very nicely portrayed in the Sandra Bullock movie "the Blind Side". What is pertinent is highschool and college basketball and football in the US is dominated by white kids and the few blacks who do get the opportunity rise to the top. It's only when you get to the elite level the black players get selected because they are the best natural athletes.
Sports like baseball should also slowly dominated by blacks but has taken longer.
I have a particular dislike of sports and racism because I was the victim. In the 1970s I tried to get into cricket clubs (I was quite good in those days) but faced open racism and hostility when I tried out in the nets. Nearly every local club I tried out for the kids made it clear they did not want me in their teams. I also remember the days in school cricket or footy where I being the darky was always the last person picked in team sports. I should emphasise this had nothing to do with my skills.
I know why many of the trolls here don't like my posts because I bring up a recent period in Australian history where racism in sport (and indeed general society) was quite blatant. The press and media have tried to sweep the past under the carpet but I remember quite vividly how it was.
I do remember that when I was in primary school, those attitudes towards selection were applied to the Aboriginal children, who were natural athletes but seldom seen participating in team sports. This has changed but of course it will remain embedded in the memories of those who were discriminated against - certainly very regrettable.

I believe that is happening Elias, the past cannot be undone, therefore people who have suffered discrimination will always have those memories - that is regrettable.

The speed of change is too slow for us darkies and too fast for conservative whites. There is also resistance to change in about 10% of the population.

Where is his respect of those tax payers who paid for his training If he wants to display the aboriginal flag then he should have entered as an independent and not used funding that could have gone to those who are proud to play for Australia (Oh! he can't because the Aboriginal flag is not recognised by the Olympic committee or anyone lest they be Aborigini)....

Two Tai Quan Do experts are competing in the Australian games under the Australian flag who have paid their own way and for their own training and then you get some idiot like this guy, who should never ever be allowed to play under the Aussie flag again..... The most anoying thing about this is that he knew the rules......no flags accept those of the Olympic countries....and last I heard Aborigini's compete under the Australian flag...

This is the second episode with and aboriginal using the olympics for a political statement (using the unrecognised and unoficial Aboriginal flag) and that is two too many....dump him from the games and make him pay the tax payer back for his training..... he is a snake....

No thank you, ive done enough of that in my time to know when its necessary or not.

We ARE being harmed! You'd know that if the mainstream media reported the truth.

As for killing people in their beds....NO id prefer a confrontation of some sort.

And as for killing children...... wake up you idiot.

we should do likewise and put away talk of violence because no one ever wins or remains on top for long using this method of dealing with people....
Oh get me my violin someone quickly.

What a load of bollocks!

No one ever wins or remains on top!!?? The Elite are on top today because of the violence of their ancestors and they are still creating violence today. And they are STILL on top!

We are losing our country because we havent been violent(and dont even think about using the Cronulla Riot as an arguement, that was a one off). And that has been very convenient to the parasites invading our country and they expect us to continue being docile and stupid and in total disreguard of our childrens future.

Unfortunately violence is the only way to go.

Here's the go, I don't like a lot of things happening in the world today (like most people I am assuming?) but the one thing that gives me hope is the Olympic games, where for one week people in war torn countries "an athlete and their supporters" can forget the fear and hate, people who are not satisfied with their governments and the elitist mentality can forget their woes and racism magically disapears when an athlete competes for his or her country.

I don't know about you in particular, but this is what the majority of people black or white deep down would like this world to be, but there is always one idiot that spoils it for the rest of us because he has a selfish agenda in this case it was an Aboriginal boxer and then... there is you?

I could care less what you think about your elitist commie system this week because I am watching and enjoying people behaving like they should behave no matter where they come from (and I love it) so nothing you can say can mar the ideal of what we could be if we all learnt to put our differences aside...It may be a pipe dream, it may be a fantasy but it makes you feel good about the world and the people in it, so I will just wave you and you aggressive and antagonistic attitude off with the Olympic spirit this week....now where are those tissues?
